Sheri I love the color of your 4oclocks ( the solid ones )is that a fushia color>>?? It would really stand out mixed in with my yellow 4oclocks. If you have seeds from them would you want to trade any seeds of flowers that you've seen I might have?? grin


I posted these blooms taken at night in the Night Picture thread Here they are in the light of day...

Oooooh Oooooh Diane....

your Brugs r sooooo soooo beaaauutiful...! n mine refused to bloom..!!! ..n they r in full sun... but i guess full sun in Malaysia is certainly not d same s full sun in your area!! Should have thot of that b4 huh..!? They r in very very large pots n their roots have grown out of their pots into the ground...so would b very difficult to move....

Oh i envy u your blooms....!!


i believe that somewhere in da darkest night...a candle glows,
i believe for every drop of rain that falls...a flower grows....

Here it is.....after all the damage and loss to my gardens this year, one lone little seed fell from a bird feeder and grew. it is only about 14 inches high but as pretty as can be.

IT is lighter than most I've seen Tamara But that is what the package said when I planted last year,, I wonder if the lightness varies with soil or sun or maybe they put the wrong one in the package,??

Soil and light both play a part. Bee's jubilee is for shade.

These Moon flowers were still open at 11 this morning shock ,, Very unusual to stay open that long at 1pm they started closing,, I suppose with cooler nights and morning they will stay open longer,, clap I have been looking for seeds on these since they started blooming in late spring. I have kept an eye on the flower itself after it's spent, then on the vine when it drops off and NOThing,, boohoo No pod no browned anything,, I want seeds from these tears I just can't figure it out,, I have had many many blooms does anyone know where I might find the seeds why ???

Very pretty flowers, Alba!
Thanks so much for sharing them, when ours are finishing up here.

I simply cannot believe that my honeysuckle is blooming again.
ON THE LAST DAY OF OCTOBER - HERE IN NY!!!
That just simply does NOT happen!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I am...

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

I don't have much left in bloom outside, but did find a few nice surprises indoors today.
I rarely have been able to get an African Violet to rebloom after purchasing it,
so I'm thrilled to see this today.

[Linked Image]

And this is a baby from that plant - my very first AV baby ever!
I had placed this leaf on the soil in the large jade plant near the mother,
and it actually sprouted a baby! Hope it continues to do well!

[Linked Image]

And LOOK at this Thanksgiving cactus flower - first time ever that this particular plant is in bloom.
I've had it for a few years, but it never really grew much nor bloomed.
I love how it's almost white with just the slightest tinge of pink to it.
